From training and tuition to insurance coverage, meals and lodging, employer-provided benefits may be valuable perks for employees. There are a number of benefits that can be fully or partially excluded from taxable wages, but the rules for exclusion vary for different benefits and even for different taxes with regard to the same benefit. The rules are complex and can be confusing.

In addition, the tax reform provisions of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) changed the rules for a number of popular benefits. Some benefits that could be excluded from employee wages prior to the TCJA are now taxable and for some benefits, employers may no longer deduct some or all of the cost. 

Join this session by expert speaker Patrick Haggerty where he will differentiate between taxable fringe benefits and benefits that may be excluded from employee wages.

Session Highlights:

  • Identify changes to fringe benefits under the 2017 tax reforms and the impact of those changes

  • Recognize how to use IRS literature to assist in administering taxable fringe benefits in terms of valuation, inclusion in income, and the computation, withholding, deposit, and reporting of taxes

  • Describe the requirements for an accountable expense reimbursement plan

  • Identify correct statements with respect to taxable fringe benefit reporting
